TRENTON, N.J. (1010 WINS)-- New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced the takedown of a major fentanyl and heroin mill in Hudson County.

An investigation led officials to the arrest of three men involved in the distribution of narcotics in wax fold stamps with the same brand names linked to 84 deaths and 227 overdoses. 

Timothy Guest, 45, allegedly operated the mill, assisted by William Woodley, 27, and Selionel Orama, 25, and now faces first and second degree drug charges, including a charge of maintaining a narcotics production facility.

Approximately 32,500 individual doses and four kilos of fentanyl and heroin were seized in the investigation.

The investigation alleges that the drug mill was set up in a luxury apartment at 300 Somerset St. in Harrison where about 15,000 doses of fentanyl and heroin were supplied per day. 

The New Jersey State Police was recently granted $2.8 million to establish the Opioid Enforcement Task Force, designed to strategically target heroin and fentanyl sources of supply across the state.
